    What's in a name, it is the beauty of the orchid that counts!

    I do prefer correct name on things but that's just me. I dislike being sold wrong things, it puts me off buying from the seller again. I ran a nursery for 40 years & wouldn't sell any plant unless I could guarantee the name.
    2nd, the colour of this is very nice & that's the only good thing, it's down right ugly to me.

    Hate it when I spend 25-30$ on a seedling and its not what I was told. Had one seller say "maybe you got the tag's switched around". I can understand why you would think about getting rid of this one. The shape is a bit weird but I think the pastels of "Little Leopard" are really nice

    Honest mistake for sure but not from the flasker/seller nursery they got it from. Seems to be happening too often & from one or 2 nurseries in Asia than acceptable. All they say is it's the fault of someone here. Don't know why people still deal with them.

    I agree.You should at least be able to exchange that plant for another catt of equal size.

    I would think I'd stand a better chance picking up a gold nugget in the main street. Haven't found too many nurseries that would exchange a plant. Would be nice but >>>>
